~ Last Minute Re-arrangement | @Chhat ~
It was some minutes left to get the sun rays on earth. They, the ladies were waiting for the moment for the rituals, Chhat, which will be start with the appearing of sun. Ultimately it was the time of worshiping Sun, as god. They were re-arranging the fruits, diyas and those incense sticks for the worship.
~ Enjoy It ~

Excellent capture of this ancient festival. I was seeing in Wikipedia the other day that this is one of the most ancient festivals in India, other than Holi and Diwali.
Nice picture showing the mashimas, boudis and kakimas engrossed in fine tuning the minute details of the arrangement. I like the way their ornaments are shining in the light of the lamps. Thanks for sharing.

a wonderful rendering of this special moment of preparation and anticipation. I like very much the way you captured the closeness of the ladies at this special moment. They have prepared the ritual together and will soon turn to the sun and share the religious experience. The details, the flames and the colours have been captured excellently. The weak daylight and the warmth of flames and colours are superb. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely week,

Une très belle cérémonie prise en début de soirée qui donne toute l'importance aux bougies et aux fleurs, tandis que les femmes restent dans l'ombre. Un très beau moment sur la rive du fleuve.

An atmospheric capture of this special moment. Excellent light control to create this moody image; allowing us to see the detail in the shadow area and avoiding any hint of over-exposure around the candles.

The darkness creates a good atmosphere in which the red garlands and the small candles play a very important role. The ladies almost disappear in the darkness but their hands stretched out for the last arrangements just catch enough light. In not so easy conditions you created a very fine composition. Thanks for sharing.

Ah, another one of your favourite festival, and this time in candle/diya light! But the colors are so bright and natural! The ornaments dazzling in low light - is fantastic.
Chhat is Sun - that is light. Photography is all about light. You are indeed blessed by the Light-God.

La lumière des bougies donne une image intimiste de cette scène très colorée. Très bonne photo.

Khub shundor hoyechhe...thanks to the fine exposure. You controlled it well...like the contrast between the blue tones in the BG and the warm tones created by the lamps
